of the line, and that is what should keep mitt romney up at night. that really puts the onus on what happens in the debates and i don't believe that at this point in the game, that romney can do something on his own that will change the course of this race. you basically need obama to make a big mistake, which at this point in the race, what you need is three things. something has to be important, it has to be new and it has to be easily digestible. the 47% statement is all three of those things. >> yep. >> you have to have something on obama's side that is comparable to that and it is hard to imagine what that could be. >> kristen soltis, it may be coincidence but since that 47% story broke, it was so damaging to mitt romney that you just get a sense now that he's got to do something pretty impactive and powerful to get that off the agenda, because the one area that we all believe he had the advantage over barack obama was the economy. suddenly in one fell swoop, you have a guy who has basically written off half the country as a bunch of scrounging victims. that is not good. >> well, i agre
